historical impact analysis
I need to examine the impacts - retroactively - of a development. I think I can do this by inputting the development impacts - which are already embedded into the economy -- and SUBTRACTING them from the current economy. I think I can do this by setting the 'level' of the event at NEGATIVE 1.0. Is this correct? An alternative method, I guess, would be to manually adjust the economy and then ADD the development inputs. Any thoughts much appreciated. THANKS!
Hi Richard, Thank you for your post! It sounds as you are wanting to ascertain the contribution of this existing development on the local region. This type of analysis is an Advanced method called a Contribution Analysis. I have included an article on the process of a Contribution Analysis: http://implan.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&layout=edit&id=211 You had mentioned subtracting out, could you tell me a little bit more about what you mean or what you are trying to accomplish with this step. Thanks!
